Why Call of Duty 2014 Will be Third-Person

Before Modern Warfare 3, Sledgehammer Games was brought in by Activision to make a third-person Call of Duty game. When nearly half of Infinity Ward’s staff left following the departure of Vince Zampella and Jason West, that game was officially “put on hold.".......

I wouldn't be opposed to it. The franchise needs a serious shake-up and some really fresh ideas.

A friend of mine has said the same thing. This seems like a feeling some people get when watching movies in 3D.

slimeybrainboy2099d ago

This idea seems ridiculous. That's like Uncharted going FPS, i just don't see it.

I think what they need to do is get rid of all the future crap. The game has become too farfetched and flashy. They need to go back to simplicity like COD 4, something relatable.

In truth though they don't NEED to do anything, they're still gonna sell shitloads.

Magnes2099d ago

If sales are good I can see them making at least one like this a year. I don't think they will ever abandon the FP viewpoint.

I must be one of the few who loved the Third Person game modes in MW2. It didn't add much but it felt 'different'.

porkChop2099d ago

Yeah I thought they were pretty cool.

DanielGearSolid2099d ago

If anything a 3rd person mode

erictaylorkid2099d ago (Edited 2099d ago )

I don't think that would be drastic enough because World at War, and MW 2 and 3 both had 3rd person modes. Just doing a 3rd person mode isn't a risk.

DanielGearSolid2099d ago

That's assuming they needed to make drastic changes...

But as it stands, COD is still the best selling fps'

No way they would go 3rd person only, and alienate the millions that buy the games now

The_KELRaTH2099d ago

Yeah adding it in as an option makes sense as it offers more choice - even fps games like Unreal Tournament had 3rd person view option.

princejb1342099d ago

Yea but those modes failed though
Not a many played the third person mode

aLucidMind2099d ago (Edited 2099d ago )

Best-selling doesn't mean it doesn't need innovation or improvement. A large chunk of the sales come from stupid parents blindly buying for their idiot kids. The majority of the CoD community are composed of idiots claiming it's great because they've never played anything but CoD and refuse to. Besides, they're already alienating their fanbase by re-releasing the same game over and over with nothing but a new coat of paint and bouncing from Nazi's to Russians to Chinese and nothing else because "MURICA!".

DanielGearSolid2099d ago (Edited 2099d ago )

Ok, so why would they need the Call of Duty name on it then?

You don't want so called idiots to buy it, yet you want to slap the COD name on it?

Makes no sense, just make a different IP

That's not alienating btw. Thats giving the consumer wat they want, no matter how stupid you think it is... They not worried about your opinion, they tryina make money

Mikefizzled2099d ago

It may have it but it won't be completely third person. Call of Duty's main selling point is that its a very fluid and quick FPS Change that to a 3rd person, which are traditionally slower, your alienating your core audience.

yazter2099d ago

Please change title to "Why I THINK Call of Duty.... etc" as it says on the site it links to.

IT's not news, it's speculation.

hello122099d ago

Gears of War is third person and my view has the best multiplayer experience on the 360. Its a fast game too. This has peaked my interest in the game. Call of Duty is boring now needs to be doing something new for me to buy it.

BX812099d ago

Gears of war isn't as fast as cod. I'm not saying some gamers wouldn't want a 3rd person view cod but it won't be as successful as the other cods.
